    Horrible stay

    The moment i checked in i should have know. Roach in the lobby, we got to our room And had to go gown for towels, the next day we asked to have our room cleaned and for towels. We got neither, then our toilet clogged and service never came, it did eventually flush. We could not sleep because oh the loud music and chatter from people sitting out side at the Hilton, they went on till 4am. The next day again we asked for service, we got back to our room at 5pm to shower, and no service . Ingot upset and saw one of the cleaning crew out down and handed her the towels and asked her why our room was not cleaned, told her if she hands me a broom And fresh towels i will do it. She replied that we have to ask for service. Which we had. She called a housekeeper to come clean. That night again we could not sleep the same people out there with music and talking , sounded like they were right out side our extra small balcony. I had to call the Hilton to complain. I will not recommend this place

    Three Night Stay

    My daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights. We got a great deal on Expedia and wanted to bring her puppy along. The room was very clean and well maintained. The staff was so friendly and helpful and deserved a 10 star rating. The breakfast was in the banquet room on the fourth floor and was served by the staff due to COVID restrictions. The omelettes were amazing so a really good breakfast was a bonus. My only disappointment with my stay was that the hotel and beach was too crowded. I understand that I was not the only person with the idea and desire to come to the beach after being on quarantine. I’m sure that I was not the only person who got a great room price. In the future, I would choose to pay more money for a quieter and less crowded place elsewhere on the island. We paid $30 daily for chairs and an umbrella but there we so many people that it took away from a peaceful getaway that I had hoped for. I’m also not a fan of loud music playing over the sound of the ocean waves but there was nothing I could do about that either. Two large hotels are on each side of the LQ as well. In conclusion, if you want a clean room, friendly staff, good breakfast, and don’t mind a crowded beach (with the exception of early mornings).....La Quinta is a great choice for you.

    Great Gulf View

    We enjoyed our stay with the great view of the Gulf. Nice room, lovely property. Convenient to shopping and dining. Parking somewhat inconvenient and crowded due to being an ocean front property. Pool area a little noisy late at night.

    The location was a great location for spring break however the rooms were dirty . The comforters , pillows , and sheets looked old. The towels looked the same way. The breakfast and everything else was great .
